11:00pm
the nsa's deputy director faces tough questions about edward snowden today. the former head of the nsa out front to respond. let's go "outfront." the national security agency under fire again for its spying programs. today the obama administration declassified and released three documents outlining the phone and internet data collection programs. right before that agency's
11:01pm
deputy director faced tough questions on capitol hill about edward snowden. >> for a 29-year-old school dropout to come in and take out massive, massive amounts of data, it is obvious that there weren't adequate controls. has anyone been fired? >> no, sir, not yet. >> who double checked snowden? >> there are checks at multiple levels. there are checks at moments when a person might be doing at any point in time. >> obviously failed. >> outfront tonight general hayden who ran the nsa until 2005. he's also the former director of the cia. general, thank you very much for being with us. i want to start with the back and forth that you heard there. obviously as you heard and nearly half a million private contractors have access to top secret classified information. that is a lot of nongovernment employees with access to crucial tings. in snowden's case there was a failure somewhere. should someone be fired?
11:02pm
>> i don't know the fine print. you had the deputy director there today answering the senator's questions. i'm sure that chris took some questions for the record to get back to senator leahy. i suggest it is not so much at the front end of the clearance process because this young man was cleared several years ago and perhaps didn't have those at that time. i think what we need is better monitoring of what goes on on our networks so that we can pick up almost in real time unusual and anomalous activity which would be someone downloading large volumes of information. >> absolutely. when you talk about snowden my understanding from sources is that he obtained a lot of information by taking his supervisors password and a lot of things he did with it they believe were above his technical ability that he had help from inside or outside. do you have any idea who might have helped him? >> no. i don't.
11:03pm
look. i would put out there as one of the hypothesize to be tested that he had assistance either internally or externally. he went to china. i have no evidence. this is not fact-based, that he received any assistance from the chinese but you have to put it out there as a theory. and test it against available information. >> there are a lot of myths out there, but there's a lot of allegations about what the government can and cannot do. the guardian came out with a new article based on documents provided by edward snowden, and their headline was nsa tool collects nearly everything a user does on the internet. and the article explained a top secret national security agency program allows analysts to search through vast databases containing e-mails, online chats and the browsing histories of
11:04pm
millions of individuals according to the documents provided by whistleblower edward snowden. true? >> yeah, and it's really good news, erin, and let me tell you why it is. what the guardian was trying to describe today was a tool that has been developed over the years and lord knows we were trying to develop similar tools when i was at the national security agency, a tool that will allow an analyst as he is works his day-to-day tasks to ask a straightforward question that would allow that question to percolate throughout all the data that nsa has already lawfully collected in its foreign intelligence mission and allow the pertinent data to come back to the analyst so he can continue his task. if you read it without the scaremongering elsewhere in the article this is really quite an achievement and it is exactly what you want american
11:05pm
intelligence analysts to be able to do to find the needle in the hay stack. >> so you're saying they can search through, you know, any given civilian, the text, the database, the e-mail searches, all those things, right? find that needle in the hey stack. i guess the fear people have is once you have the ability to do that, what stops you from doing it whenever the heck you want on whomever the heck you want? >> first of all, erin, you can only do it against the data that you have collected. and the data that nsa collects is controlled by law and controlled by oversight. so if you've got information that you've lawfully collected, that's where you begin the issue, lawfully collected data. and then you use tools to make sense of what truly is an ocean of data. but you've got to begin with the first premise, the data you have, you're authorized to have in the first place. >> back in june, general hayden,
11:06pm
general keith alexander, the director of the nsa, appeared before the house intelligence committee. he had an exchange that i've been trying to fully understand, it was an exchange with the chairman and i wanted to play it for you. >> does the nsa have the ability to listen to american's phone calls or read their e-mails under these two programs? >> no, we do not have that authority. >> so the technology does not exist for any individual or group of individuals to flip a switch to listen to american's phone calls or read their e-mails? >> that is correct. >> is that really correct? he said all right, they don't have the authority. but it sounds like from what you said, they do have the ability. >> well, no, i didn't say that. what i said was, with information they've already collected, that's what chairman rogers was asking general alexander about, do you have the ability to collect this kind of information. now, once you've collected it, yes, nsa has incredibly powerful
11:07pm
tools to make sense of the data already lawfully collected. look, keith made -- general alexander made it very clear, he doesn't have the authority to do that. second, even if he or i, when i was there, directed an nsa employee to do something like that, they would reject the order. they know what is lawful and what is unlawful. >> right. and i understand what you're saying but i'm still trying to understand, when mike rogers said the technology does not exist for anyone at the nsa to flip a switch for anyone to listen to phone calls or e-mails, but you're saying they do have the ability to search to you texts and e-mails to find that crucial word, needle in the hey stack. it sounds like those two things are contradicting each other. >> no, they're not. they have the ability to search through e-mails that they have already had the authority to collect for the key words or other indicators that might lead to very, very valuable intelligence. but erin, you and your viewers
11:08pm
need to distinguish between two things, the collection and the analysis analysis. most of the greenwald article today was about analysis. but analysis can only be performed on information previously collected, and it is collected under its own set of rules. >> so we have to trust the government and trumps the rules, right? as the american people, that those rules and laws are going to be adhered to and protect us? that's essentially what you're saying, right? the technology is there to do this, all that will protect us is a law? >> yes, the law and oversight. you say trust the government. that's a multiheaded being, as you well know. but what i'm saying is you don't have to just trust the national security agency. you've got a workforce there that has the same values that the rest of the american population has. you've got oversight by two congressional committees, and
11:09pm
for much of what nsa does, you have direct oversight by the foreign intelligence surveillance act court. so i suppose you can say trust the government, but what i just described for you was all three branches of the american government, executive, legislative, and judicial, having a hand in this. according to our constitutional system, and lord knows the i know there are weaknesses and dangers, but according to our constitutional system, it doesn't get any better than that when it comes to oversight. >> general hadden, thank you. and still to come, the day before he's to be sentenced, aerial castro's family talking. plus, another $1 million jewelry heist in france. how the thieves are staying a step ahead of police. then a teenager kills herself after being bullied on the internet. is facebook responsible for her death? for four decades, video of president nixon is revealed.
11:10pm
it was shot by his own staff and what he says is pretty shocking. a quarter million tweeters musicare tweeting.eamed. and 900 million dollars are changing hands online. that's why the internet needs a new kind of server. one that's 80% smaller. uses 89% less energy. and costs 77% less. it's called hp moonshot. and it's giving the internet the room it needs to grow. this ...is going to be big. it's time to build a better enterprise. together. delivering mail, medicine and packages, yet they're closing thousands of offices, slashing service and want to layoff over 100,000 workers. the postal service is recording financial losses, but not for reasons you might think. the problem? a burden no other agency or company bears. a 2006 law that drains $5 billion a year from post office revenue while the postal service
11:11pm
is forced to overpay billions more into federal accounts. congress created this problem, and congress can fix it.
11:12pm
11:13pm
we have breaking news on ariel castro. in just a past few minutes, details coming in. castro's sister telling cnn michelle knight will make a statement tomorrow. pamela brown is in cleveland and spoke exclusively to castro's sister. pamela, what can you tell us about michelle knight?
11:14pm
>> reporter: well, erin, what we know so far is that one of the three victims of ariel castro's victims will be making an impact statement tomorrow at his sentencing. i've been told this by a couple of sources and also as you said, spoke to castro's sister, and she confirmed and corroborated the information that michelle knight is likely to be making an impact statement tomorrow. again, things could change between now and then. but that is the expectation. the other two victims, amanda berry and gina dejesus, are expected to be represented by family members at the sentencing tomorrow. but they are not expected to make an appearance. but castro's sister tells me michelle knight is expected to come and make an appearance at the sent tensing. we've heard from the three in that youtube video that came out several weeks ago. it was the first time we heard from them. and michelle knight talked about the hell she went through,
11:15pm
saying i'm not going to let this situation define me, i'm going to define the situation. let's take a listen. >> i may have been through hell and back, but i am strong enough to walk through hell with a smile on my face. and with my head held high. and my feet firmly on the ground. >> reporter: and erin, castro's sister also told me and reiterated that castro will be speaking at the sentencing tomorrow and she told me we're going to see another side of ariel castro, that he's going to be explaining a lot. that he's not the monster we think he is. she is only one of two relatives that have visited castro in jail and told me that he's very loving, that he's the brother she's always known, and she kept saying just wait and see what he has to say tomorrow. a lot will come out. >> that would be just amazing. pamela, as you've been there
11:16pm
reporting when we heard him a few days ago, it was blaming, when he was talking about the pornography and the abuse in his own life rather than remorse and empathy, as you're saying perhaps he might exhibit tomorrow. obviously a surprise that michelle knight was not the person a lot of people would have expected. he might have thought amanda or gina would have spoken. you have had a chance to go through the complaint itself, and there's some new information in here when i was reading through it that was surprising. what stood out to you? >> reporter: you're right, erin. a lot of the information is what we already know. you talk about michelle knight. it just reiterated how castro caused the death of her unborn child and went into more detail about that. but it also talked about how castro threatened them and made them feel powerless. one way he did that was by telling them that there were other victims before them, and according to this document from the prosecution's office, he told the victims some of the
11:17pm
victims prior made it home and others did not indicating that other victims were killed. so this was his way of controlling the women and making them feel powerless. it talks about how he controlled their every movement through food and drink. in fact, it said they weren't allowed to use the bathroom on the first floor, that there was a plastic toilet in the rooms that was emptied infrequently. really disturbing details here. but it also talked about the courageousness of these women, how they kept a diary detailing the abuse they went through and talked about their dreams of making it home one day. of course, we now know that happened this mast may when they were able to escape. it did have a happy ending but they have a long road of recovery. >> thank you very much. one of castro's victims, amanda berry, gave birth to his daughter while in captivity. tens of thousands of pregnancy
11:18pm
are a result of rape, and sharing custody with their attacker is a very real and frightening possibility. ted rowlands has this "outfront" investigation. >> reporter: when ariel castro asked to see the 6-year-old girl that he fathered by raping amanda berry, a judge ruled no, that it was inappropriate. the idea, that a monster like castro would have any parental rights is hard to believe. but in 31 states, rapists do enjoy the rights of a father. >> i was astonished. >> reporter: shauna's daughter was six months when she found out that the man who raped her wanted partial custody. >> how could i possibly entrust, you know, my beautiful baby to him? but beyond that, i didn't know how to spend the next 18 or more years of my life tethered to my attacker.
11:19pm
>> reporter: shauna, who was raped at the age of 21, is now a lawyer and helping to enact new federal guidelines that push states to pass laws to strip rapists of their parental rights. according to a 1996 study by the american journal of obstetrics and gynecology, each year, there are approximately 32,000 pregnancies resulting from rape. as many of a third of those women give birth. shauna kept her daughter in part because being pregnant helped her get through the pain of being raped. >> just not feeling to alone, not feeling so dead inside, because i actually have this life growing within me. and it was a comfort to me. >> reporter: critics say most cases aren't as clear as the castro case, and judges currently have enough power to prevent up fit fathers from seeing their children. >> there are lots of solutions that are short of this, and i
11:20pm
think a lot of times when things come in this top down fashion based on one or two truly tragic stories, we end up making bad law. >> reporter: there are other women out there shauna says just like her who had no idea. >> if we knew children, would the same choice? and i think that's hard to answer. >> reporter: shauna was able to prevent her attacker from having any custody rights. the federal government is trying to create a pool of money to give some of these mothers the resources to fight their attackers if they come up
11:21pm
against custody battles. >> thank you very much, ted rowlands. our third story, a cannes crime spree. another jewelry heist, this one just basically across the street at another high-end watch store three days after one of the biggest jewelry thefts of all time. tom foreman is outfront. tom, this is better than a movie. what's happening? >> reporter: this is unbelievable. the resort town of cannes has been riddled with high-end robberies this year. the latest at a fancy watch store where two robbers game in, one with a grenade, the other with a gun and made off with 40 watches. we do know the same place was robbed earlier this year, and and 150 watches were taken, valued at $1.3 million. so no ordinary watches there. the other robbery, they've now revised up the value of it. the carlton intercontinental hotel, $163 million taken by a
11:22pm
lone gunman in about a minute. back in may, two big robberies made news. a safe was broken into, about $1 million in jewels taken there. yet another hotel, a necklace worth $2.6 million was snatched. erin? >> it's amazing. authorities are saying this criminal network could be involved. you talk about the guys going in, it's like a guy in a hoodie goes in, comes out the side door with a $140 million diamond. i know they think the pink panthers, this group could be behind them, right? >> absolutely. this just looks like their work. interpol says the pink panthers are a group of about 200 criminals who operate all over the world, and these are their hallmarks. they like to hit the play grounds of the rich. you want to get money? go to the people who have it. certainly the french riviera qualifies as that.
11:23pm
they target expensive jewelry and come up with ways to sell it, which is the key here. and they typically hit very fast with very precise plans and certainly some of these latest robberies look just like that. erin? >> that is an incredible thing. they have no leads on this right now? i know there was a very important member of the pink panthers who was in a jailbreak just recently who got out of jail too. any leads do they have? >> this is one of the things they're looking into with this group. they obviously have leads in all these crimes. you have to figure out which ones are real and not. there was this jailbreak in switzerland a few days ago and two armed men broke in and busted out two other men, including a known member of the pink panthers. at least two other pink panther members have been busted out of jail this year alone.
11:24pm
does that prove they're involved? no, it does not, but it is another reason authorities are looking hard at this group, by interpol believes since it started in the 1990s, look at this, may have stolen almost $400 million worth of jewels. erin? >> $400 million. that's enough to make you think -- i don't know. insurance companies are involved. thank you very much to tom foreman. just stunning. it's day after day. it's not out of a james bond movie, it's real life. still to come, an embarrassing report, a really embarrassing report about the people hired to keep people this this country safe. thousands of incidents of misconduct, tsa workers sleeping on the job, stealing from passengers. our special coverage continues. a horrible mistake by the dea. a suspect left in the cell for five days new york food, no water, no lights, no bathroom.

11:28pm
welcome back to the second half. we start with stories where we focus on our reporting from the front lines. while protesters continue to clash in cairo today, american lawmakers went head to head on whether to cut off aid to egypt. here is senator rand paul. he's making the case to cut off $1.5 billion.
11:29pm
>> when a military coup overturns a dramatically elected government all military aid must end. that's the law. >> only 13 senators voted to cut off the aid. egypt is a top recipient of american aid. whether you agree with cutting the aid or not u.s. is giving aid to a country whose government was toppled. which is against american policy. if the u.s. government formally called it a coup they would be forced to end the aid. the obama administration has chosen not to do so. an update on the cyclospora outbreak that we told you about last week. at least 378 people are infected with the stomach bug in 15 states. authorities in iowa and nebraska say prepackaged salad mix may be the source of the outbreak. cdc says they can't say whether it is all connected to the salad. the fda is trying to track down the source of the ingredients in those salads and says the
11:30pm
process is so labor intensive it requires the collection of thousands of documents. o.j. simpson gets parole but not his freedom. he was granted parole on some charges related to his 2008 robbery convictions for seizing memorabilia he says belongs to him. but he's also serving consecutive sentences on other charges. it could be another four years or so before he is free even with this parole granting. the family of ron goldman was not comforted by the news. saying it's unsettling to our family knowing the responsible for ron and nicole's murder could be free. simpson was acquitted in the murders nearly two decades ago. it has been 725 days since the u.s. lost its top credit rating. what are we doing to get it back? the federal reserve characterized recent economic growth as modest and says it is expecting economic growth to pick up. but the fed, and ben bernanke
11:31pm
was mum on when it might slow down its stimulus program, which a lot of people interpreted as a sign the fed will keep the accelerate or going and pumping money into the economy. our fourth story out front the tsa gets a pat down or slap down. a congressional committee held a hearing today to discuss an embarrassing report that shows the transportation security administration had more than 9,000 cases of misconduct in the past three years. top leaders of the tsa, an agency only created after september 11, had some very tough questions to face on capitol hill today. >> reporter: the tsa on the hot seat again. >> if integrity is a core value then tsa, it is time to prove it. stop with the napping, the stealing, the tardiness and disrespect and earn america's trust and confidence. >> reporter: the agency scolded and tsa leadership grilled on capitol hill by lawmakers for two hours.
11:32pm
the agency has grown to become one of the largest government workforces. the tsa has 56,000 screeners operating at 450 airports. the cost to taxpayers, $5.4 billion last year. that's according to nonpartisan watchdog group taxpayers for common sense. so when a government report came out showing 56 screeners were involved in theft and more than 1900 incidents that could hurt security like sleeping on duty and allowing friends and family to bypass security, the big price tag raises questions. >> we are well past a decade past 9/11 now. it is very fair for the american people to ask if they are getting for their money the security that we need. >> reporter: jeff price, a professor and airport security expert is most alarmed by instances where screeners allowed family and friends to skip checkpoints.
11:33pm
>> if you look at most of the major terrorists attacks on aviation from pan am 103, the list goes on and on there has been an insider that facilitated or carried out the attack. a report like this exposes an insider security risk at a far greater level than we should be willing to accept. >> reporter: while the tsa agrees on how they monitor and follow up on misconduct investigations, they maintain bad behavior is only a sliver of their workforce. >> every single time we have one knucklehead who decides he is going to do something bad it tarnishes the image of our organization. i have our people on the line 365 days of the year and they know if they fail someone can die. >> reporter: despite the no tolerance policy, one lawmaker said in today's hearing that not all of the screeners who stole from travelers were fired. some were only suspended and others only given a letter of reprimand.
11:34pm
the tsa defended the move saying they cannot fire an officer unless they can prove guilt. erin? imagine being locked up in a cell for five days with no food and no water, drinking your own urine to survive. that is what happened to 25-year-old daniel chong. he just settled a $4.1 million lawsuit against the dea. the university of california san diego student was detained in april after dea raided a house where he was visiting friends. in that house, they found ecstasy, marijuana, several guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition. he says he never knew about the guns or the drugs and he was never charged. he's outfront tonight to tell his story. thank you so much for taking the time. just even talking about what you went through on the basic headlines is shocking. five days locked up in a 5 x 10 windowless cell. you thought you were going to die. you had a piece of glass in your
11:35pm
arm and you wrote your mother a goodbye message. tell me what happened. >> for the first few days i was pretty much in denial. i couldn't believe what they were doing to me because i didn't think it was an accident because of how many people were involved. i didn't think they had forgotten me. i was a bit worried about what they were going to do and confused, all kinds of emotions, just a clash of emotions, all of it. >> you had hallucinations. you were close to kidney failure. you had to go to intensive care. >> i just about lost my mind. >> you thought you were going to die. >> that is not an exaggeration at all. i could have died at any moment. >> you lost about 15 pounds during that time? >> i did. >> how did you survive? i know we talked about you having to drink your own urine which is horrific to talk about. that was your sustenance? >> that probably is what saved me.
11:36pm
i knew i needed to drink some fluid. the only fluid that was around was from myself which was urine. scientifically you just know you are going to die without it. i do watch survivor shows and i did learn that you have to drink your own urine if that is all you have. i went ahead and did that. the other thing i did was try to get the sprinkler going. there was a sprinkler attached to the ceiling. i tried to get that to spill some water so i can drink some of it or at least swim in it or something. it took a lot of energy because it was in the ceiling. i was barely tall enough to reach it. i kicked the door, cries for help. i put shoelaces in my jacket to let them know i was there. i did all kinds of stuff, whatever you can think of to survive in there i did. >> when you look back nine people including you were detained during the original raid by the dea.
11:37pm
and the agents found all of this ecstasy, drugs, guns, ammunition, they never charged you. what were you doing in that house? >> i was celebrating 4/20. it's a holiday that a lot of college students, many college students celebrate to celebrate marijuana. so i was smoking marijuana at that house, just celebrating, like a party. >> you weren't aware of the ecstasy and the heavy kinds of drugs and guns in the house? >> absolutely not. i knew about some stuff, but definitely not that stuff, no. >> you were never formally arrested or charged. you settled with the dea for $4.1 million. i know you are working towards a degree at economics at uc san diego. $4.1 million is a lot of money. i don't mean to say you didn't go through hell because you did.
11:38pm
and he was for risk and you almost died. $4.1 million is a lot of money. what are you going to do with it? >> i'm going to buy a home for my family. other than that, i am going to protect it for myself and lock it all away. >> and save it. >> right. i'm going for the retirement. >> thank you very much for telling your story and taking the time. we appreciate your coming out front. >> thank you. >> amazing story. a teenager kills herself after being cyber bullied. was facebook responsible for her death? there is no crying in baseball. what about in the business world? are tears a sign of weakness? and why bars around the world are pouring some of the best vodka in the world down the drain.
11:39pm
11:40pm
11:41pm
11:42pm
i want to go to italy tonight where facebook is at the center of a suicide. italian authorities are questioning teens who posted abusive messages on a 14-year-old's facebook page. facebook could be the target of a criminal complaint. samuel burke is out front. what is the allegation against facebook? >> an italian prosecutor tells cnn he's looking to throwing the book at facebook for failing to remove offensive content that may have played a role in a 14-year-old girl's suicide.
11:43pm
in january, carolina jumped out of her bedroom window, landing head first on the concrete below. before that, a video showed up which she appeared to be drunk. then the prosecutor says her ex-boyfriend and his friends posted a steady barrage of abusive messages. friends and family say they reported the material to facebook but say nothing happened. a facebook spokesperson told us, we are deeply saddened by the death of carolina, and our hearts go out to her family and friends. harassment has no place on facebook and we actively encourage teens around parts to report incidents of bullying. for crying out loud. is it not okay for a woman to shed a tear? "newsweek" released a story of jill abramson. but only two words are important enough to make headlines. you can see it right there.
11:44pm
front page of the judge report. i cried. she admitted she cried after an article suggested she was a failure. but would we still see the headline if it was a guy that cried? margaret hoover and john avolon join me. great to see both of you. we've all been through this, some really nasty stuff. i appreciate it if it was one nasty article. i want to read what abramson told "newsweek" after the article. this was the article that said she was a failure. i should say it went right off me. i cried. by the next morning i wasn't completely preoccupied by it anymore. i had my cry and it was done. do you think there's a double standard when it comes to men and women admitting tears? >> i do think there is. there is no crying in baseball. crying in the workplace is more acceptable for women. in this specific instance i think that gets picked up and
11:45pm
seen as a chink in the armor. she is a tough woman. she is a successful woman. that was picked up. and there is an element of meanness as well as the humanizing element. >> that you said there's no crying in baseball meaning that there is no double standard. the standard for women is the same as the standard for men in the workplace. in other words, she's not expected to cry. men aren't allowed to cry, women aren't allowed to cry. in finance and news and these industries where men have been at the top, the standard for women is not the same as women. it's not acceptable. >> women do cry, people do talk about it. they do dock them for it. so if you don't cry, it's okay. but if you do, people may say it's okay, but -- >> men and women are different. >> her men and women are wired differently.
11:46pm

>> clearly, john boehner is not afraid to cry. water works like that, drop of the hat. there is a double standard. if nancy did that it would be held against her. on the other hand, the fact that boehner does it, probably makes it a safe place if nancy pelosi goes down that road. >> the issue is it's not about emotion, it's about emotions that men perceive as weakness and crying men perceive as weakness. if a man cries, we know a man is tough. if a woman cries, maybe she's not up to the job. >> okay. >> all right.
